Have you ever thought about what makes lovers a real couple and improves the quality of their relationship? Not long ago, I analyzed my relationship and came to the conclusion that the strength of love did not depend on the duration of the relationship.
The relationship between a man and a woman becomes stronger when the couple experiences life important moments and discovers that they have similar interests.
These moments and common challenges help both partners realize that they are meant to be together and they have everything to be happy. Read on to understand what I mean.
1. Talks before asleep
You might not realize, but talking with your partner before falling asleep is incredibly important and one of the most intimate moments in a relationship.
Heart-to-heart conversations strengthen the emotional connection between lovers and give them an opportunity to share their impressions, feelings, and emotions experienced during the day.
Furthermore, late night is a perfect time for dreaming and planning your future together. If you do not live under the same roof, then you can talk to each other using modern electronic technologies.
2. When you get acquainted with your partner’s family
One of the most sacred moments in a relationship is meeting parents. This action automatically proves that the level of trust in your relationship is high and your partner’s intentions are pure and sincere.
The acquaintance with my partner’s family opened my eyes to many new things and helped me look at my significant other from a different point of view. After the meeting, I understood that my partner has loved me with all his heart and soul.
3. The birth of a child
This moment is more meaningful and intimate than the previous one. The birth of a child takes a relationship to a new level. It fills the life of lovers with meaning, new feelings, emotions, and responsibilities.
People sometimes say that the birth of a child can also destabilize the situation and shatter the harmony between partners, but I think that this happens only if their love is artificially sweet like candy.
The birth of my child changed my outlook and it seems to me that our family unit has become stronger.

4. When you realize that doing nothing together is a wonderful thing
The realization of that fact is not a sign of aging or depression. It means that partners find spending time together at home comfortable and interesting.
While it is great to lead an active lifestyle and fill your relationship with colors, adventures, and breathtaking moments, sometimes it is normal to slow down for a while. Many couples cannot imagine a happy relationship without flowers, surprises, parties, and thrilling moments.
Sooner or later, they become disillusioned with their relationships, because life is not a bed of roses. Partners become a real couple when they understand that everything they need for happiness is their significant other.
5. When you overcome insurmountable barriers together
One of the most challenging things in life is building a long-lasting and healthy relationship. All couples go through fights, misunderstandings, difficult situations, and resentment.
Reality checks and sufferings are crucially important because they test the strength of people’s relationships. The couples, who have gone through dark times together, respect and love each other more than those who solved their common problems with help of separation or breakup.
If you and your partner face an insurmountable barrier one day, you should do your best to overcome it together. Your efforts will only strengthen the relationship because problems unite people.
6. When you realize that you want your partner only
During the first stages of a relationship, the bond between partners is often not strong enough and many of them find it difficult to resist the temptation of having sex outside the relationship.
Over time, partners get used to each other either emotionally or physically. If they are satisfied with their sexual life, they usually have no desire to cheat or play a double game.
As soon as you realize that you are sexually satisfied and your partner is your number one, then you will be ready for the next important life step – marriage.

7. When you take a side of your partner regardless of everything
When both of you are ready to move the mountains, stick to the partner’s guns and take up the cudgels for them, even if something goes wrong, your love is real. You love your significant other and subconsciously understand that he or she is an essential part of your life.
Strong and pure love is the thing that sometimes makes people blind to justice, honesty, and decency. The main thing is not to cross the line. If you have taken your partner’s side many times, but you think that they were wrong, then give them a helping hand, but explain that doing evil things is a bad idea.
I hope many of these moments have already taken place in your life and strengthened your love. What other moments help us realize that we are a lovely couple?
